Overview

Nobody Looks That Young Here is about interconnected characters who struggle with whether to accept or reject their seemingly predetermined lives in Currie Township, Southwestern Ontario. The youth and adolescence of one character, Michael Carrion, makes up a large part of the narrative, but the narrators vary in age and gender and the story unfolds over a period of approximately 30 years. As ancestors, this book could count Lives of Girls and Women, Winesburg, Ohio, Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town and the novels of S. E. Hinton.

Reviews

Hamburger: Daniel Perry's first collection has a curious title given hamburger's associations with grinding out inferior quality. But not so. The stories are arranged in three grinds, "coarse" (13 very short stories), "medium" (nine stories of more conventional length) and "fine" (which features a single novella, told from three perspectives). The Toronto writer's stories are entertaining, sometimes provocative and always original. --Toronto Star
